Nokia confirms its strong, leading GSM IPR position

(PresseBox) ( Espoo, Finland, )
Nokia has today learned from a Qualcomm press release that Qualcomm has filed a complaint for alleged patent infringement against Nokia Corporation in the United Kingdom apparently involving two patents.

Nokia is not surprised that Qualcomm has once again chosen to litigate.

Nokia is yet to receive a copy of the complaint or analyze the details; therefore, Nokia cannot comment on the substantive aspects of the claims. Based on our current information, Nokia does not believe that Qualcomm is entitled to an injunction.

Nokia has declared 223 patents as essential to the GSM standard where the total number of declared essential patents is close to 800 making Nokia a world leader in the development of GSM/GPRS/EDGE. Qualcomm's position in GSM is clearly inferior to Nokia's.

Nokia will analyze Qualcomm's claims when it obtains the complaint and will defend itself to ensure that its rights are fully protected.
